Thanks for the reply. I knew of your visit to my parents house in S. Florida to take pictures. They now both live in Jacksonville Beach, up north.
I also have some copies of some of the research you had done and appearantly left with my parents. I would like very much to get more information from you - specially regarding any spin-off families and their travels. I do have a pretty fair amount which I took from the internet copy of Minot Giddings work 'The Giddings Family or the Descendants of George Giddings'. In particular, I am aware of the Colorado Springs Giddings who were early settlers and businessmen there. One question I have is re. the spelling of ELIAB. You spelled it Elial....... I see on your worksheets and in Minot's work that Eliab is the correct spelling. On another of your worksheets you spell it Eliab.Do you know any more to verify the spelling?
Another --- George Wight Giddings married Sarah (Eliza?) STEWART. I can't find anything about her or her family except that she had a brother Herb who lived near Flint (Flushing!?). I remember HER as Grandma Giddings when I was very young, about 50 years ago. Have you ever run into anything onl this Stewart family?
Also - do you know if there is any link at all between Minot Giddings' name and Minot Street in Romeo? Minot Street is where my mother's family grew up and where my uncle still lives. Just curious.
I'll be in touch........ I always prefer to keep MOST information on this site in case it is of any interest or help to others but will contact you directly for other reasons such as the photo copies. I'd really like to get copies of your copies to give to my nephews and nieces one of these days - if I ever get my information gathered.
Regards. Wilson Feel free to email me where I can give you my phone number and address.Let me know if I can help you in any way.
